List of World Famous Architects ALIVE

Here is a List of World Famous Architects ALIVE and there are much discussions if they have been under rated or overrated.I wrote  this article so that  clients or students of architecture can search with ease the Living legend ALIVE .It is interesting that they all have an identity , strong individuals and differing entirely one form another. During a competition among these architects the solution to the sites problems even among the best of architect differ. And this it is a misnomer to think a site has only one solution to the problem.

There are interesting differences among them- such as Zaha uses difficult  geometrical curves in her design because of her first degree on Mathematics, which laid the foundation for 3 dimensional curves. And Rem Koolhass has a early background as a journalist and he continues to communicate using building sculptural forms to the masses.Frank Gehry departure from the orthodoxy is fundamentally because of early influences comes as working as a driver.As such one can see in a competition, the solutions they offer to a specific site are so breathtakingly different from one another.One would think there is a solution to every site and not a host of solutions varying and departing from one to another.
